His descendants still seek, nor will they find, the one word that contains the universe

The Jorge Luis Borges Center
Maintained by my friend Ivan Almeida, the Borges Center's magnificent web page is based from the University of Aarhus in Denmark. The JLBC is dedicated to the research of works by Borges, the study of themes and the style of thinking found in his work, and the compilation and translation of works by and about Borges.
